“I am impressed that you could arrange me to speak at such short notice,” I commented as I met Marama and KJ Allen at the Maori Studies Department (Te Tari Maori) at Wanganui High School.
“Well, technically it’s not possible,” KJ admitted. “But you’re too good an opportunity to pass up. I’m sure we’ll be fine.”
I was stoked to speak to my first school group in New Zealand. The students lapped it up, and I thorougly enjoyed it. I felt as though my delivery of my presentation is getting smoother, and it felt good.
I spent the rest of the day updating the website, which was about a week or more out of date, due to the wee Whanganui National Park episode.
From Wanganui, I am heading to Palmerston North, and then on to Masterton to meet up with an old friend from uni days, before carrying on to Wellington. Slowly making my way south!
